3 Ways a Lawyer Can Help Your Car Accident Case

Wondering what a car accident attorney can do for your case? Here are three ways a lawyer can simplify your legal experience and secure a fair settlement outcome for your situation.

Subtract Stress from Your Life

To get compensation for your accident, you must file claims with your insurance company, the at-fault driver's insurance company, or both. Filing claims and negotiating settlements can be complicated.

When you hire a car accident attorney, your attorney will handle all of the legal complexities and negotiations necessary to securing your best settlement. Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies and make sure your documents are filed correctly.

Protect Your Settlement from Greedy Insurance Companies

If you choose to negotiate with - or even talk to - the insurance company of the at-fault party, seriously consider consulting with a car accident lawyer beforehand. Insurance representatives do everything possible to get you to minimize your injuries over the phone to reduce or eliminate how much they have to pay you.

Any statement you make to the insurer may be manipulated and used against you in court to justify a lower settlement amount. Your claim could be thrown out altogether.

Working with a car accident lawyer will eliminate the opportunity an insurance company has to twist your words and reduce your claim. A lawyer is a highly-trained professional who knows how to protect you from the traps set by insurance companies. Your lawyer will handle all insurance negotiations to keep you safe.

Keep in mind that insurance companies work on a strict timeline and will begin evaluating your car accident from the moment the collision happens. The sooner you retain an attorney, the better chance your case has at holding up against insurance lawyers and adjusters.

Secure a Full & Fair Settlement Amount for You

After a vehicle collision, the at-fault driver is responsible for the victim's damages. However, the losses that are covered by insurance are dictated by the driver’s policy limits.

If the damages you incur in the accident go beyond the at-fault driver's policy limits, you may need to pursue the driver on an individual basis. Going after the driver is an unfortunate, but necessary action if you want to recover the compensation you deserve.

A lawyer will do everything possible to ensure the at-fault driver is held responsible for your damages. An attorney will calculate the value of your claim, go after the responsible party for full compensation and, if necessary, file a lawsuit and try your case in front of a jury.

The best way to know if hiring an attorney is right for your case is to see for yourself. Take advantage of a free case evaluation with a skilled attorney. A lawyer at The Roth Firm, LLC will look over your car accident case and determine the best next step for you. Call (404) 777-4899 today!
